I have done essentially that: Used the CNC to cut a groove (happened to be a set of curves with wider radius than my follow bit bearing size), cut roughly down the middle of the groove with the jigsaw, used the follow-bit on the router table to clean up the edge to the edges of the groove. Had no problems with it.

The one thing I did do was I used a bottom bearing follow bit (which was a top bearing bit in the router table), thus the exposed top of the bit was a bearing and not the nasty cutter blades…
